Ready to make history for Market Street and our city on October 15?

 In Uncategorized

It’s really here. The chance to make history happen for Market Street and San Francisco.

We are just a little more than a week away from the final approval for the Better Market Street plan. This transformative plan has been in the works for a decade.

The vote on Tuesday, October 15th at the SFMTA Board of Directors is the one we’ve been working toward for so long.

If all goes well, this vote will finally move us towards a people-first Market Street.

We need you at this vote.

12:15 PM: Rally on the Steps of City Hall

1:00 PM: Speak Out at the SFMTA Board Meeting, City Hall Room 400

RSVP to speak out
We’ll share talking points and update you on the final timing so you don’t have sit around all afternoon.

Specifically, in approving the Better Market Street plan, the SFMTA Board will be voting to eliminate private vehicles from Steuart Street near the Ferry Building to Octavia Boulevard. This will transform our city’s “Main Street” into the quiet, calm, and people-filled boulevard it should be.

The project will also bring safer intersections to the 500,000 people who walk on Market Street each day, plus improved bus service for the 75,000 weekday riders on Market Street and a separated bikeway for people biking.

We think it’s time for San Francisco to join cities around the world in creating more car-free, climate-friendly streets. Don’t you?

Please join us in getting the Better Market Streets plan across the finish line on October 15 – and making history together! After the SFMTA Board meeting, we will celebrate (fingers crossed!) with a walk down Market Street to the Fort Point Brewery at the Ferry Building.

5:00 PM
Celebration Walk (we hope!)

RSVP for the walk
We’ll walk from City Hall down Market to get a drink on the Embarcadero.

If we win this on October 15, it’s about much more than Market Street. This is the direction our city needs to go – and go boldly. Putting people and safety first. If you’re with us on this, I hope you will chip in to our work to win safe streets for all. See you at City Hall!
